Anybody else has this problem?
close the trunk
Car hasn't seen rain yet but looks like a bad design flaw.
Just a "flaw" in the overall design. If it was smaller stream of water, likely would run off the window and down ahead of the trunk seal. Since it was larger stream of water that had some speed, it shoots off the window and trunk seal is low enough to not stop it. Probably difficult to design trunk opening that can account for every possible variable. I'm sure most any car that has trunk or hatch is going to have some scenario where some amount of water or drips will not get stopped. Just a quirk have to deal with unfortunately.
It’s pretty bad when there’s heavy rain.
The video I took was just from a light rain situation. The rubber seal that’s suppose to catch the water is not doing it’s job.
I’m more curious if this is happening to a lot of the model 3 or only certain car with some bad sealing
They might have to revise that seal a little and add a curved lip to stop the water from flowing over.
Time to complain so they can revise that part. Everyone do it so the line waiters can get the upgraded seals!!!!!!
Have you been thru car wash yet? Good luck. I found out my left tail light gets water in it.
This person also had a leak...unsure whether trunk lid was open or closed: Signing today...or so I thought.
At least we don't have a hard-top convertible!
Unfortunately this is exactly what happens on my 3 after a heavy rain. It soaked the trunk footwell.
And we (I meant current owners) get a recall..
Someone should tweet a video showing the problem to Elon.
Why didn't I think of this sooner. Done!
For something like that (design flaw), he'd like to know, and he may very well get something rolling to fix it in factory for the rest of us who are still waiting.
Same issue on mine. Any time you have a wet trunk lid, the water runs straight down into the trunk from the rear window. They're going to have to redesign the trunk seal. Another fun one is when the automatic wipers turn themselves on before you can shut the driver's door, shooting water on to the inside of the door and the floor.
They come on before you actually attempt to drive? Seems to me like they should only come on once you hit the brake pedal. Someone should tweet @ Elon with a video showing that!
Yep. Just noticed this today. Thought I was the only one.
or automatically shut off when any door is opened.... Seems like a simple fix for the wipers.... The trunk issue.... No so easy.... redesign of the seal could be possible.... but based on the speed in which the water rolls down, that seal would have to have a pretty high lip to stop it...
i feel it will be more than seal re-design, more like frame adjustments to give more space between glass and trunk lip.
Ironically, I think this space was reduced after the irrational uproar around the perceived size of the trunk opening. Wouldn't bet a paycheck on it, but I enjoy irony, so am posting accordingly.
